. 27 units in the building. the reduction in size has changed the unit mix and size of some of the units and there are now more one-bedrooms than before and we have 32 parking spaces, 27 for 27 units, 3 for community assigned and two for car-share. excuse me. next, please. this is a little bit burnt out, i apologize, but you have it in your package. the rendering in the middle is the design rejected at the conditional use application in june. to the left is our first attempt at the demasing of the building and running along the bottom there are sequential demasing proposals that were discussed with members of the community, polk neighbors to try to achieve a compromise that would work for all. in the end, we did something a little different from the right-hand slide. that is the design it's used to be. this is the design as it is now. we're going to do a little bit of back and forth here. what we have here -- and i will speak loud enough to be heard -- what we have here is an attempt to create ambiguity about the building . is it really one building? the same concept [ ina

't believe that that sized unit belongs in an area that isn't an established residential area like south of market. south of market has over 40,000 residents and 40 acres of parks managed publicly, not by cbd but recreation and parks. that's 1/10 of an acre per thousand residents as it stands now managed by recreation and parks. the green envy report produced in 2007 by the former neighborhood parks council has very well detailed. district 3 and district 6 are yearning, aching for more green space. and without that green space, i'm not sure it's humane to have such small units in those spaces. now, maybe along the jay church line, maybe along the l, the m, the t, the kt, maybe that's the spot for these efficiency units where there's parks and stuff. i do have an overhead that i want to show. the congestion in south of market has created a health problem, an air pollution health problem. locating most of our affordable housing these days, 35% of the 3,000 units being built in transbay will be in this area where the particulate matter in the air is already unsafe levels. we need congestion

talking about workforce size in the united states? david: the point is, you have to go wherever you can in order to get the most value for your shareholders, right? >> well, that's what i want to address. and yes, but you're talking short term. long term every corporation benefits from a robust economy and from an expanding middle class that can buy the products. they also benefit from good public relations in a positive image when they move jobs back to this country instead of having workers overseas who aren't free to bargain decent wages do the work. david: okay. rich, i guess what concerns a lot of shareholders out there, apple shareholders is, the question, is tim cook taking his eye off the ball? is he focused, as you mentioned this was done primarily for political coverage. that really didn't enter into it. i never saw it enter into steve jobs mind. he was more focused on getting shareholder value wherever he got it. maybe not so with tim cook. >> tim cook has had a really good 14 months run as steve jobs successor except for the last two months. the first cracks started appearin
